Peach Papaya Rum Ice Cream Topping

Ingredients

2 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 oz papaya nectar
2 oz dark rum
1 medium banana
1 large peach
½ C slivered almonds toasted
2 ginger spice cookies or ginger snaps (ginger is a fabulous partner with peach so you may want more!)

Preparation

1
Melt butter in a medium sized skillet on medium low heat.
2
Add sugar and dissolve.
3
Pour in juice and cook 3 to 4 minutes to let thicken slightly.
4
Add rum and cook until bubbling and it forms a syrup, for about 5 minutes.
5
Add peach and banana slices.
6
Stir to coat them with syrup.
7
Toss in almonds. If you prefer the almonds to stay crunchier, sprinkle them over the dessert right before serving.
8
Gently insert cookies into the ice cream as seen in the picture.
9
Whether you float them in cereal, drop them in a healthy cup of yogurt topped with pecans, or blend them into a rich smoothie, don't let peach season pass you by.....

 



About

As soon as you sink the knife in and shave a layer of the fuzzy coat off of a succulent summer peach you know it's going to be sweet if the sticky nectar oozes over your fingers and onto the counter! I enjoy them slice by sugary slice standing at the kitchen counter but it's also a delectable challenge to imagine what else you can do to the baseball sized juicy stone fruit?

Need a simple breakfast or dessert idea for the upcoming Labor Day weekend? Want something new to try with those luscious summer peaches? Here's a super simple sugary rich idea that's fantastic on pancakes, waffles, and ice cream!
